On Friday for college...and everyone in the family is ready to move on except for my mother. I don't know why she can't let go...

For the last 19 years you've been a part of her life. A Huge part. Letting you go is like leaving high school all of your friends and being told you can never go back to how it was. It's even harder if you are moving far away. When I moved out my mother slept with the couch against the front door.

I won't be that far from home, actually. But I don't know, I feel like she is trying to use every last minute of my being under her roof to dictate what I can and can't do. It's mildly annoying.

Best to humor her as long as she is reasonable. Remember college is expensive and she has a washing machine.

That's true.
