She talked to DH yesterday and I guess is laying the guilt thing about me not calling lately.I mean its not like I call other people and not her.I don't even have friends or time for any

Don't fall prey to your Mother's guilt! She's just trying to control you. Live your life your way.

My husband has said the same thing in the past and his best friend made a comment about my mother being possibly "toxic" years ago.I will bite the bullet and try to visit for one overnight by myself that weekend not 2,sorry but shes not getting the whole weekend.She and my father chose to move out of state with reason(to afford a house) but she did push him and when he was still alive,he even mentioned something like had he out-lived her(hes been gone for 10 years),he wanted to come back to NY.

I don't think that's necessarily true.
