I think your "revenge" is great. I'm going to keep that one handy.
If your father is happy and does not care if SHE
moved things around, then perhaps your should not disrupt their kitchen. I'm sure you miss your mother, but your father's happiness should be more important to you than where the corkscrew or basting brush are kept. If he does not care, then you should not care either. You should respect your father and not attempt to sabotage the relationship which is giving him joy. BTW, they can see right through your antics, and I'm sure SHE
is sad that you don't accept her as your father's helpmate.
Yes, you can love more than one person in your lifetime, and that does not mean that your father loves your late mother any less.
