Hi Five for Friday!

We are finally feeling settled with my parents. We're still waiting on word from the job front so it's super nerve wracking. But we trust and believe that everything will work out.

I can't begin to explain how happy I am that moving is done for now. Packing boxes and lifting stuff is hard work!

On to this weeks highlights!
1. Emberly rolled over! She's 3.5 months. While we were traveling we put her to sleep on her belly and she woke up on her back! This actually happened when she was 3 weeks old in her crib but I'm going to call that a fluke. lol.

2. I have started exercising and watching what I eat (for real this time). We should be settled for a little bit with no traveling, so I have no excuse. I'm almost back up to my pregnancy weight (how the heck did that happen!?). I am determined to get into shape before I get too far away from my goal. I blame it on not nursing this time around. I lost it immediately with Luke. I actually lost it immediately with her too, but I only nursed for 2 weeks (with Luke it was 4 months) and then gained it almost all back. Frustrating!

3. I began applying for jobs. It would have to be a great job with great pay for me to justify the cost of daycare. But I feel like it's something I have to do incase things don't work out with the job Josh is looking at. I want some sort of desk job that is ideally part time. I've put out at least 10 applications, so we'll see what happens!

4. I'm sleep deprived. We are all sleep deprived. Sleep deprivation is terrible. The end. I'm so tired of trying to figure out why she won't sleep- so I'm just going to stop trying to figure it out. We thought it might be teeth (it's early but she drools and chews like crazy), or that she's not getting enough to drink (pretty sure 30-36oz a day is plenty), or that it's too cold, or too hot, or that her diaper is full, or that she's sleeping too much during the day, or that we've been traveling and she doesn't feel settled. The list can go on and on. I'm just going to accept the sleep deprivation, feed my baby when she's hungry and make up my sleep when my children are grown. The upside? I don't worry as much about SIDS with her because I get to see or hear her practically every hour at night!

5. I'm going to recap this month with #5. I set some goals back here. I didn't get to everything but it was worth a shot.
Update project page. There's a project tab at the top of the blog that I started a while ago. It's about 1/3 done with pictures/links. 
**I didn't quite get this finished. I did work on it though. Gotta count for something, right?

Finish a book.
**Fail. I did finish some magazines. Close enough. 

Update 101 goals. Fix broken links. 
**I added my 101 goals to the right side bar. The problem is in posts where I have mentioned the 101 goals. I'll slowly but surely be fixing this. 

Have a yard sale.
**It wasn't our best one ever, but we made about $160. Not too shabby for junk. We still had an entire jeep load to take to Salvation Army. 

Finish the flower beds out front.
**Done! It took me about 3 weeks to get into gear but I finally laid the mulch and raked through it. Wish I had taken after pictures. I think I was just more thrilled that it was finally done!
