The Greatest Show on Earth

I have been swamped at work. We are getting into busy season and I am lucky enough this year to be a part of that. We get busy because all the corporations extend their returns and the new deadlines are 9/15 or 10/15. So I have been trying to get in early, leave a little late, and not goof off which includes blogging. But on a happier note, I got the results of my reviews back and I got a 4. That is on a 5 point scale and stands for "exceeded expectations". Hopefully, my rating will help increase the amount of my raise this year. I'll find out end of September.

We went to see the Greatest Show on Earth last weekend. It was my first circus experience and I really enjoyed it! Of course I liked the acrobats best but I also thought the tigers and horses were cool. Not to mention the little person clown.

You can barely see the acrobats in this one.

Woo-Hoo: I'm almost 1/3 done with the CPA exam!
Boo: I have to take the test on Monday :(

Linds, Enjoy reading your blogs. Thanks for letting us know (via blog) that you have a test coming up. We will be praying for you on Monday especially!! Glad you liked the circus. I haven't been to one since I was a little girl (notice I don't say how long ago that was!) but I remember being wowed by it all. I especially like the animals and the aerialists. Love you, hon. Hi to Justin!! COG

You beat me to the circus! Was it worth it? Aaron has always wanted to take me, thinking it obscene that we never went!

Daddy and I are so sorry we never took you and Kara to the circus. We were too poor to do circus and ice capades (which we did go to once or twice). Besides that my mom took me to the circus every year and I didn't think it was all that great!

How fun! I haven't been to the circus in years. Good luck on your exam. By the way, I will change from Mr. Chile...I guess it isn't all that fitting anymore...maybe Mrs. Chile???

I've clowned around my whole life. Who needs brothers ringling or barnums or baileys when you've got Crazy Uncle? And I hope CPA doesn't mean Cannot Pass Atall. Good Luck!

Clowns are not good. If I have to pick one thing that currently would haunt my dreams these days.... Maybe not quite that bad but still. I'm glad that you enjoyed the circus. I'm sure that they are very fun but all I can think of, nay the only thing I equate with circuses, are clowns. Shudder, shudder.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to agree with Caleb on that one. Clowns seem awfully scary to me. But hey, I'm glad you had fun! That picture of you and Justin is really cute by the way.
