Lee eventually returned to writing Seeing Levittown and later, wrote a new by-lined, front-page column, "Good Morning", when the paper went to a morning edition. The family settled into a rather typical, lower-middle class modality. Bob went to work, came home, had dinner, watched TV and went to sleep. Gary occasionally went to high school, got Robin off to elementary school, cooked the family meals, maintained the house, and stayed up all night reading science fiction. Robin hassled his older brother, suffered from terrible asthma aggravated by two chain-smoking parents, and tried to keep a low-profile. Lee went to work, had dinner, and went to meetings.

She had a number of happy and fulfilling relationships with healthy, successful men in the community who sought her beauty, wit, intelligence, and sophistication. AJ was old history. She and both her children found many happy hours working together in local theatre groups. Lee was a major functionary in local social and political organizations, where she worked for the benefit of her beloved Levittown. Her journalistic career gave way to free-lance writing and advertising. . Lee and the boys became active in the Levittown Players and other local theater groups. Among her proudest achievements was receiving rave reviews for her performance in the title role of Giraudoux's The Madwoman of Chaillot.
