Lifetime: How have you adjusted to living at home with your spouse for an extended period of time?
Jamie: It’s definitely been a challenge. It was a challenge at first with everything going on. It was hard because we didn't know what was going on or what was coming our way. But I think we really worked together. We solidified our routine throughout the day. We have coffee time. Beth: We've only halfway tried to kill each other this period. Jamie: Only a few times. Beth: Just a smudge. A pinch. But I've enjoyed it. Jamie: It's been fun. I've gotten to know you a lot better. Obviously, we've been married on TV and it's just been go, go, go, go ever since then. Just the fact now that we have a moment to stop and get to know each other is kind of nice.
Lifetime: How do you make time for yourself when isolated with your spouse?
Beth: Baby, I love you. But I'm about to tell you something. Jamie: Oh god. She's giving away the secrets guys, pay attention. Beth: When I say that I'm taking a bath, it's really that I'm going to hide from you. Jamie: OK, that's fine. Beth: Are you OK with that? Jamie: Hey, why do you think I'm like 'Oh, baby. I need to go shave.' Beth: You have been shaving a lot lately. Jamie: Oh god, I think I'm going to go take the trash out. Beth: Oh man, that trash has never gotten full right now. That's funny, so it's not just me doing the weird, like, 'I'll just be right back.' OK, I love it. And I do love spending time with you, it's just sometimes it's just that little bathroom time is all I need.
Lifetime: What is your biggest pet peeve about your spouse while in quarantine?
Jamie: Well, I've obviously known this about you but I've really come to embrace this, [which] is you like to do a bunch of different things at one time. Beth: It's multitasking. Jamie: So you leave a lot of stuff out and I'm the person where I'm like, if I start a task then I work on that task and I finish that task and I clean up. Beth: Hold it, are you telling me I'm messy? Jamie: No baby, you're just doing a lot of different things at one time. Beth: I've struggled with it my whole life. I've gotten better. We're working on this. We are, I promise we are. Jamie: Any pet peeves about me? Beth: Yeah, actually I have one. When you eat soup... Jamie: Oooohhh... Beth: You slurp. Jamie: Dude, that's like half the point of eating the soup. Beth: I think you like purposefully like hit your spoon on the bowl as hard as possible. Jamie: Just to make as much noise as possible? Beth: Oh, yeah! I'm like is that necessary. And then the slurp on top of it. I'm just like, I don't get it. I love you though. I love you so much, so let's move on before we get our first divorce. Jamie: Alright, we're moving on.
Lifetime: Has your daily routine changed since quarantine has begun?
Beth: Oh, it's just all sorts of messed up. Jamie: Is it messed up or is it backwards? Beth: I mean, not only do I have to make sure you have your lunches, and your dinners, and your coffee in the morning. Jamie: Coffee in the morning is key. Beth: But I had a routine too, you know? I did. And it's not cool. But, you used to like leave the house to go to work. Jamie: I know, I used to leave the house and have my own space. Beth: I know right. So yes, my routine, mostly my morning routine, is messed up. But that's OK. I still love you. Jamie: Do you like our new morning routine together? Beth: I do, and I wouldn't take back our life for anything, quarantine or not. I like this and I don't want it to go back to normal. Jamie: Aww... She's so sweet when she wants to be. Beth: I know, right.
Lifetime: Has do you keep things romantic with your spouse during quarantine?
Jamie: I really try to pay attention to you and have a little better connection. So I like to put my phone away, put my computer away, and have coffee with you in the morning. Beth: Nice. Jamie: Definitely in the afternoon, once our work day kind of winds down, I like to have an appetizer and some wine or cook dinner together. Beth: Do you think that sexy time--basic Caucasian sex--has definitely improved since quarantine? Jamie: I think so. Because I think we've been doing a lot of quality stuff together. So I think we've been a little bit more connected. Beth: Yeah, I think so. Jamie: I feel connected to you. Beth: I feel way connected. I'm liking it.
Lifetime: Have you picked up any new hobbies since quarantine has begun?
Beth: I have picked up some new hobbies since quarantine has begun. Jamie: Tell us about this new hobby. Beth: I have found out I love to bike ride. I love bike riding. It's so much fun. I feel like a little kid when I do it, and I cannot wait to do it even more. At first I was a little hesitant, so thanks for forcing me to bike ride with you. Jamie: I didn't force her. I just highly encouraged her. I just said, 'Babe, you should just go take a little quick ride with me.' Because I love to bike ride, it's a great release. Beth: You've been super great about it. Like you said let's go for a short bike ride, nineteen miles later here we are. Jamie: I know. Beth: It's so much fun. But I really thank you though because I found out that I really like to bike ride. And I didn't know that. Jamie: You get to go out and explore. Beth: It's fun! Jamie: Soak up some sunshine. Breathe some fresh air. Beth: How come I've never had this before? Why have I been a runner my whole life?
Lifetime: How has your work life changed?
Jamie: Work life has changed. Obviously, I used to go into an office, and I used to travel to go visit clients. So now I am here one-hundred percent of the time. Beth: Yes! Jamie: But in all seriousness, you've definitely helped it out a lot. You definitely helped me keep a good balance and not always be like work, work, work. And [to] slow down a little bit and just enjoy. Beth: It doesn't always have to be so stressful. Jamie: Right, right. So just kind of slow down a little bit. Smell the roses, as they say. Beth: Is this going to ruin your day? No? Then just take it with a grain of salt. Just ease into it. I just need you around for another fifty years. So that's why I just get so worried about you being stressed Jamie: Yeah, I can do that.
