I don't se what you should apologise for. What she is doing is indeed iritating - but need only be mildly so, unless you give her the power to annoy you. So, like many older folks ( and surprisingly many younger folks ) she is locked into her habits, one of which is to see you as needing and benefitting from her wisdom and advice. You could choose to indulge her, not by accepting that you ARE actually inept, but by simply smiling and saying " Yes, I have" to all her suggestions.
IF she didn't have this role in your life ( as she sees it ) she might run a serious risk of seeing HERSELF as (useless and nothing ) someting she won't be keen to face.
I'm wondering why she and your sister are coming up from CT - do you really need their help in moving, or is i more of a sort of family tradition, which plays into HER rescuer role ( which makes her feel better about your occasional rolse as her rescuer ) ?
