Annie's Mailbox: My mother expects too much from me

Dear Annie: I am sick and tired of my mother expecting me to fix everything. When my siblings get in financial trouble, she expects me to bail them out because I have a better job thanks to my college degree - a degree I paid for with student loans and grants. My family didn't help one bit. My wife and I struggled to pay off the loans while my siblings were getting into debt. My mother also expects me to spend all my vacations and weekends doing maintenance and remodeling on her home, even though I live out of town. She thinks I should fork over the dough whenever her "needs" cost more than she can afford, which is most of the time.
