'05 DX Timing Belt relacement question?

What do I do?

I had to rotate the crankshaft pulley 2 rotations after the belt was off I know that your not supposed to do it. I used the replacement belt to turn the Crankshaft pulley and it was stubborn at first. The first go around it wouldn't come to rest at TDC the second time around the pulley was able to be moved to "rest" at TDC (it was late and a long day,-trying to do it myself)... The Camshaft pulley didn't move the entire time i was spinning the crankshaft.

What can I do before I put this thing back together only to find I've killed the engine. -Frustrated

'05 DX Timing Belt relacement question, revisited...

The acid test...
First off, I must be an idiot, to save $ i have blown an entire night and am now working most of the morning in the rain to get the GF's car back together. Can I go back to work now please?$?
Here's what I've done, took the upper and lower belt covers off and backed out the spark plugs, turned the camshaft pulley 6-7 times noticing the "firing" of the cylinders and re-checked to see if the TDC marks were still GOOD and TDC. That all checked out so now I'm putting on the replacement a/c alternator belt and P/S belt then tightening everything in and praying I don't have any timing belt related problems for a long long time...
