AFRAID TO FALL ASLEEP

I'm afraid that if I go to bed, Gabe will miss his flight.  He is supposed to fly out of Nashville at 6:10 am, which means he has to be there by 5:00 am.  As of yet he has not opened the email that has his itinerary in so he can print it out.  He hasn't got a computer so he will have had to borrow someone else's.  He doesn't have to have a printed itinerary... I hope...  I gave him all the info on a text message over his cell phone so as long as he has his phone with him, he has the flight number and itinerary number.

I'm just worried that he won't get up and make it to the airport in time.  5:00 is pretty early for a Saturday morning.

I priced his flight last night but didn't book it because he wasn't sure if he was going to drive or fly at that time.  Today when I booked the flight for him, the price had gone up by $200!  For anyone who hasn't already realized this... don't wait until the day before your departure to book your flight!  I could have gotten 13 cases of Corona for that amount.  Or 33 cans of Folgers, or 200 Whoppers on Wednesdays and weekends.  Or maybe 1 gallon of gas!

Hey, Gabe nearly drove by my house on his way from Ft. Campbell to Nashville.  I will keep him in my prayers for safety while travelling.
