I changed my own oil and filter before the 5000 mile reminder went off.  Now
at 5000 miles, the Maintenance Reminder Light blinks.  I know there is some
way to reset this by starting the car with your finger on certain buttons.
Does anyone know this proceedure?  I'd love to know.  Thanks

Reset instructions:

of Instruments and Controls: Gauges, Meters and Service Reminder
Indicators", item (j) in the "Service reminder indicators and warning
buzzers" section.)

It's in the maintenance manual. I don't remember the page, but you will
find it.
