We're moved in......Sorta.....

Well just about all our stuff is there. A very big thank you to the 15 people (from church) who showed up to help with the move. They got the moving truck packed in 40 minutes!! Wow, I think that is some sort of record. I have to say, we have this moving thing pretty down pat (not that I want to use those skills ANYTIME soon!!). Despite having 5 kiddos to watch, feed, clean....and one being a newborn still, we actually had everything packed!!! Not to mention Jerry put just about all the boxes out in the garage. Not only that but he organized the garage in sections, so all of the stuff going into the house was in one section, all the things needing to go in the atic, in another section, etc. I am pretty impressed.

Now for the *sorta* in my title. We still have no electricity in our new house. The good news is that it should be done Monday. ("should be" are key words here) It's a very long story, but we are very pleased that we will have it so soon. Now we are trying to convince Time Warner to give us cable. Both of our neighbors have it. But when we called for service they told us they have no intentions of bringing service to that area. Ummmm, then can you please explain why are neighbors on either side of us have it??? Thanks to Jerry's persistant calls (like two times a day) they are relenting, and are giving us price quotes to bring the lines in. I am eager to get our stuff unpacked and get our life going again. I am sooooo, soooooooo, SSOOOOOO ready to get back to a routine. And SSSSSOOOOOOOOOO ready to crack down on the child training!!! Things have been a wee bit out of control around here. Which I totally expected. I mean we just have a baby, then we put a move on top of it. That's enough fuel to feed unruley children.

Jedidiah is doing great. He's getting bigger. He's a whole 7 pounds!! He went from the 3rd percentile to the 5th!! Woohooo!! It's so weird that he is 6 weeks, but still a newborn size. He is still not as big as our biggest newborn (that being Flannery topping the scales at 8lbs). Saoirse was born at 7lbs, but three weeks later she was 10 lbs! What were we feeding her? He is just starting to give us little smiles. His face lights up when he sees us. I love that :-)

I am taking this week off of the BL3 contest. Another long story, but it coincides nicely with our move. So that is one less thing to think about. I will continue to exercise and eat as I should, but will not have to do the challenge or the task for the week, which will free up my time. Definitely what I need right now.

We will be going out to dinner tonight as I have to unpack my pans from the other house to bring back here to use for the next few days. We won't be doing much tonight, although the temps are great right now. Maybe after dinner we will do a tiny bit. We have to run by and open the fridge doors. We dont' want it to get moldy in there. I had the doors open, but needed to close them to put some stuff away and forgot to open them. Ugh. Have a good day.

Contest begginings and "killer" Parmesan cheese

Ahh, ya gotta love my titles! So creative don't ya think? JK Ok, so the Biggest Looser contest starts today!! Yeah! I have been getting back into the swing of things these past 5 days. I have been going for a walk every morning. Plus I have juiced 4 out of the past 5 days. And eaten a salad for lunch each day as well. So I am doing well. So here is my starting stats:
weight: 154
waist: 37 in.
hips: 42 1/2
thighs: L-24 1/2 and R-24 1/4
Another goal I have is to lower my blood pressure. For some reason ( I am sure the 48 pound weight gain had something to do with it) my blood pressure kept creeping up during this pregnancy and it hasn't gone down. My top number has come down, but not the bottom. My last reading was 120/90. I start my resistance exercises on monday. Check out the Jorge Cruise books from you library. I like the different type of exercises and the best part is that it's only 8 minutes a day to do. Now I am adding a few of his different books' routines in all together, so it will take me longer than the 8 minutes. But I am hoping that it will make a big difference in my ummm, saggy body!
Ok, now about the killer Parmesan cheese. I was in the bathroom, when I hear this *sound*. Not quite sure how to describe it, but it made my Mommy warning sirens go off. I could tell it was coming from Saoirse, so I called her to me. She came in covered with this white stuff all over her face, shoulders and chest. Not to mention she had gobs of it in her mouth. Hence the sounds. She was gagging and very scared. I didn't know what it was at first. I had a cup in the bathroom that I wanted to use to give her some water. But I first had to make sure it wasn't something poisonous that she had all over her. I scooped out her mouth first, then smelled some of the powder. I knew it was something familiar, it took a second for it to register that it was Parmesan cheese!! So there you have it, a warning, beware of Parmesan cheese! I went to the kitchen to find the fridge foor open and the cheese bottle on the floor. We happened to buy the extra large bottle this time around. The opening is very large and she must have tipped it back to eat some and it came POURING out. Poor thing. But she is fine now. Back to her ol' self.

Ok, little man work up so I need to get going. He is doing great by the way. He's up to about 7 pounds now! Yeah!

Here's my before pictures:
