What do I do about this friend

I have this long distance friend who always wants to talk a lot more frequently than I can or want to. I have explained that to her but the way it always goes is that she will call, I call her back a week or two later and the call always has to last 1 1/2 to 2 hours so this is a call I really have to schedule for. After that I always feel that she should be satisfied for at least a couple of weeks but that's never the case. She always calls again a week after we talk so I end up feeling like I always have a pending phone call I have to make and I'm starting to wish she would just go away. I'm busy raising a family and trying to live my life and hate the feeling that there is always a chore (the phone call) that never gets done. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Thank you so much Paradigmshifter. I didn't realize that the reason why this bothers me so much is because I feel guilty about it for no reason. I'm going to do what you suggest and she can't accept it then it is her problem. Thanks again. Have a great weekend!
