Using get_post and wrong posts showing up after initial use (2 posts)

    I am using get_posts on my home page. Afterwards, I want to use normal loops to display posts. But for some reason, the get_post doesn't seem to be getting cleared. ANy page in teh site will display what looks like the first get_posts that is being used on the page.

    It is driving me batty. I have looked around and found nothing about it. The closest I coudl see was a rewind_posts function. But that is to reusea query... so that doesn't work.

    Here is an example of my code:

    <?php
    $posts = get_posts('numberposts=1');
    foreach($posts as $post) :
    setup_postdata($post);
    ?>
    <div class="mainPost" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    <h1><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h1>
    <small class="author">written by <span><?php the_author() ?></span> | <?php the_time('l, F j, Y') ?></small>
    <div class="entry">
    <?php the_excerpt('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;'); ?>
    </div>
    <p class="postmetadata"><span class="read"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>">Read The Article</a></span> <span class="add_comments"><?php comments_popup_link('No Comments »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »'); ?></span> <?php edit_post_link('Edit', '', ' | '); ?>
    </div>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    <!-- END MAIN POST -->
    <?php
    $posts = get_posts('numberposts=5&offset=1');
    foreach($posts as $post) :
    setup_postdata($post);
    ?>
    <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    <small class="author">written by <span><?php the_author() ?></span><?php the_time('l, F j, Y') ?></small>
    <div class="entry">
    <?php the_excerpt('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;'); ?>
    </div>
    <p class="postmetadata"><span class="read"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>">Read The Article</a></span> <span class="add_comments"><?php comments_popup_link('No Comments »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »'); ?></span> <?php edit_post_link('Edit', '', ' | '); ?>
    </div>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    <!-- END POSTS -->
