Ugh, TQC, can I talk to you about my job/life woes and maybe you'll give me helpful advice?

So, I work at a restaurant right now. I love my restaurant. I love my coworkers and boss and the food we serve, but we're not doing very well at all and unless things pick up dramatically we'll probably be out of business/the business will change hands by the end of the summer at latest. I'm trying to figure out if I should jump ship, and part of me really wants to because money, but a lot of me wants to stay until the bitter end because I'm loyal like that.

At the same time, I'm planning on moving in with my SO in the next six to eight weeks. He works at a company that's doing pretty well and he loves his job, but it's about an hour away from my restaurant, and the town we're planning on moving to, Danbury, is about 45 minutes away from the restaurant (and my current home). I also don't drive (right now - I have my driving test on Thursday and really hope I rock it out so I can drive) so getting up to Danbury for work would be dependent on my SO, who drives through Danbury on his way to work every day. So I could conceivably work lunch service should a restaurant hire me (there would just be a lot of waiting around since a lunch service generally runs from like 10:30 to 4 and my SO works 9-5). Then, once we move up there and I acquire a car, I could shift onto working dinners as well.

Good plan? Bad plan? Feedback in general?
