Some of those other factors include little things. For example, there is no food in my refrigerator. If you leave for two weeks, then anything you left behind will have spoiled by the time you return. And if you are about to leave for two weeks, then you only purchase what you think you can eat before you leave. Also, keeping two kitchens is confusing, as it is easy to forget you bought butter/cereal/tea for that location but not for this location.
You also come home to a big "to do" list, even if you left the place in good shape. All the cleaning things you might do once per month are now crammed into two weeks. Two weeks of mail is on the table. If there has been a power outage, then you come home to wrong clocks and timer lights switching at peculiar hours. And there are appointments to be made. On this last trip, I came back and made five phone calls on Monday to set up appointments. I am guessing the two residences lifestyle is glamorous if you do it the way Frank Lloyd Wright did it -- live in Wisconsin the warm part of the year and Arizona the cold part of the year. Making a big trek once every six months is sustainable. Splitting your life between two locations; not so much.
In the midst of this turmoil, I have been attempting to clean my studio and impose a small amount of order. I looked around and gathered up some of those projects and kits that were gathering dust, taking up space, and generally in the way rather than properly stowed. My thought was that I would have few distractions in the man cave, thus forcing me to work on unfinished objects.
