Hey, There’s New Star Wars Tonight!!! Bring on Rebels!!!

CWK Logo 2How fortunate am I to be scheduled to post on the day NEW STAR WARS comes into our lives?!  The wait is finally over for Star Wars Rebels! I for one am very excited. I know that “always two there are” when it comes to sides of fences as well as the Force. Much like the Prequels I am happy to have new Star Wars in my life. Yes, I have a certain love for the PT that many don’t share (please refer to “fence” comment). Fine – Darth Maul, Fett and Clones, and Vader man…Vader. ‘Nuff said.  There, now I can get back to NEW STAR WARS!

A New Found Respect For Uncle Owen


It may not be known to a lot of CWK readers and listeners, but right after Star Wars Weekends ended, my personal life went crazy. Out of nowhere and in the blink of an eye, our happy family of 3 grew by one as we added a foster child to our numbers. For the purpose of this blog, we will call her Ahsoka. Our new lil padawan is only 2 and half years old and has greatly changed our lives. This wasn’t something we sought out, much less something we were ready for. Everything happened so fast too. From the time of the phone call asking us to take her to the time she moved in was only a couple of months. Now that there are 4 of us and there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day. Laundry doesn’t seem to ever be done, and potty training has reemerged as a dominating factor of my days again. Its created an extra stop in the morning to drop Ahsoka at the Jedi Academy preschool, another in the afternoon to pick her up. An extra bath time in the evening, and extra plate to set at meal time. This lil padawan has added a lot of work and at times stress into our lives.

Yet, as I sit here right now typing this with one hand as I’m holding her while she is coughing and running a fever, I would not want my life any other way. Even though Ahsoka’s arrival added a lot of complications and work into our lives, her arrival has added more good. She has added a lot of hugs, laughs and love into our lives, lives which we thought were pretty complete. Why am I telling this story you ask. It’s for this reason, through all the experiences of the past few months, I began to analyze my views on a lot of things. This time of analysis and self exploration let me to realize I have been too hard on one of the most crucial characters in the Star Wars Saga, Owen Lars.
