She's been extra snarky lately too because my dad is having is nomadic itch again and wants to move. He already found a job in Huntsville, and my mom is threatening all sorts of nasty divorce if he does it.
This is standard Suu Family Cold War procedure, but there's only so much I can take. The War of the Rhode Island Migration lasted about 6 months before she finally caved, the 2nd War of Florida Aggression wasn't AS bad, because by that time she was on lithium most of the time anyway (I was too young to remember the 1st War, but from what I understand it almost involved my dad going by himself and leaving my pregnant mom with 2 kids behind.) I think she's going to win this one, especially since they own the house this time and they don't want to deal with selling again.
He's already been offered his job back in Providence, as well, with a SUBSTANTIAL pay raise (like, 20k more than what he was making before), but he can't handle the winter with his leg. I'd love to have my parents back up north (as long as they stay in South County again) but if he can't function when the temp drops below 30 or shovel snow, as my brother wouldn't be with them this time, it's not a good move.
