I'm taking math in the summer which starts Monday. I was complaining on facebook how I need to get away before the quarter starts. She suggests that I go to San Francisco with her and my brother. First of all, I love my mom and my brother, but being stuck in a car with BOTH of them is not my idea of a good time. They'll probably spend the entire trip ignoring me anyway.
Second, they are going the week I start classes and she suggested that I skip the first week of class. Make up for it. I don't know, maybe I'm just being mellow-dramatic, but sometimes it feels like she doesn't realize how important this is to me. She thinks I'm just getting my bachelor's for the hell of it. She's always telling me to drop classes, that I can't handle the load. It's like...thanks for the confidence mom!
I realize that in this case she's only trying to help, but if she really wanted me to go she'd plan the trip on a day I am not in class. Like a weekend perhaps? I don't know. Do you think she's just trying to help or being less supportive?

So she's supposed to change HER plans with your brother to San Francisco and go earlier to accommodate you then?
Sorry doll but it's not always about YOU. She offered to take you, and you acknowledged in your post you realize SHE WAS ONLY TRYING TO BE HELPFUL. So what is the real problem here? She isn't changing her plans to revolve around your life or you think she shouldn't have even bothered asking because it isn't being supportive in teh manner YOU want it to be?
