"Tell her she can only spend her own money shopping (meaning if she wants to go she has to get a job and use that money, possibly from her own account)?" - colovion

Does your wife have a college degree? To be a substitute teacher all you need is a bachelor's degree, you don't need to be certified to teach. It's an easy gig and I imagine up in Michigan the pay is probably pretty good to be a substitute. You just sign up at the local school board building and they do a background check to make sure you're not a pedophile and you show them your degree. The good thing is that if you want to travel or need a day off you just don't accept any teaching assignments for that day. It's very flexible. Another good thing is that usually if you are any good at it at all you'll get a plethora of calls to teach. When I was substitute teaching I got called almost every day.
