Skip secondary. adds an unecessary extra point for possible contamination, oxidation and makes you clean another carboy. unless you have a sanitizaion problem or bad practices, you can let your beer sit in primary for months easily. My coworker let his kolsh sit in primary for a year and said it was fine. Thats probably pushing it though (and a waste of time you could spend drinking the beer already made)
Make more beer and keep both fermenters full!
again. skip secondary and if you want to, cold crash your beer in primary which will have the effect of a 2ndary
