I've learned to structure my answers to include chores/errands that consume a lot of time..
My mom knows better. She know if I tell her I am busy, I am. She also knows if she really does need me, I'll be there for he when I can. My mom doesn't bother me. We get along very well.

For example, if my mother asks us to go over on a Sunday and my wife wants to just chill for the day, my mom will not push. She knows better.
