Surely the thing to do would be to volunteer to go to all SWMBO's evening events and make a complete drunken scene ensuring that a) you never get invited anywhere again and b) she won't speak to you for at least a month, thereby allowing more time more time to concentrate on what you want to do. Downside is slightly longer stay in hospital, eating soup through a straw and having to communicate on MSFS via text for a while.
