Good news, bad news

Let's play a little game.

Good news...Sung Hyun has another job :)

Bad news...this job is a 2.5 hour drive from my city :(

Good news...Sung Hyun starts work mid-week, next week :)

Bad news...Sung Hyun has another job test at the end of the week :(

Good news...Sung Hyun has agreed to let me rent out a room of our house since he'll be gone :)

Bad news...yesterday we set out early to find some long-term accommodations for him, assuming that we would be passing his job test, and there was NOTHING :(

Good news...we have a hotel booked for 1 week, so he doesn't have to sleep in his car...haha :)

Bad news...It is nearly impossible to find rental space in this new city.  Renting a living room will cost you more than $500.  A LIVING ROOM with crazies!  :(

Good news...we have a back-up plan until he can find something more permanent.  My auntie has a room an hour away which would mean a long commute on a flat stretch of highway -- but it's available :)

Bad news...the room hunting starts again next week :(

Good news...we got treated to a nice dinner from Auntie Cathy and Uncle Alan (HI UNCLE CALVIN!) :)

Bad news...Sung Hyun is a terrible night driver -- breaking on the highway because he's scared and only going 80 km/ hr, rather than the 100 limit.  What is he going to do in WINTER? :(

Good news...Sung Hyun has a job :)

Bad news...good-bye my lover :(

If you don't mind my asking, what city will he be working in?

I'm sorry this has come your way. I can feel the weight in your heart from here. Perhaps let him go and do it for a while, but if it becomes too much to bear consider him returning earlier than planned.

Well, this is bittersweet isn't it. It's good that he got a job but sooo crappy that it is 2.5 hours away :-(
