I think I can also declare that the show has given us all a bit of useful therapy. I believe in Megan's case she learned that she is a bit short with me, which she later apologized for. I admire her courage in being so open and real on camera. Lindsey has changed her attitude about life, as well as her hair color and make-up choices now. I believe we all have changed since the show and I hope it is for the best. However, even when our best sides weren't displayed, I think we stood together as a family and for that I am proud. There have been some questions asked about how Ryley is doing with my dating. I actually only went on one blind date. Since then I have been steadily dating someone new in the last few months. I've kept that part of my life separate from Ryley, usually having our get-togethers only when Ryley is with his father. So I guess I would have to say that my dating has not affected Ryley at all this point. I'm just taking my time for now.
As for the situation with Duff, I think you all have all heard enough about that to last a lifetime now. So no worries, you aren't going to get "Duffed" again this week. All is well, and I'll leave it at that. I will say though, in terms of relationships — wasn't it great to see Donn take Vicki out to Catalina in the season finale? I don't think anyone can complain about that sequence. It was so nice to see her face light up when he told her about the plans he made. We all wanted to be in her shoes.
