[OS X TeX] Using STIX for a single font

I am afraid that things got much worse.

I did this, and the entire document font changed to STIX (I think.) That was what I was trying to avoid. I would really like to get Computer Modern back. So I deleted the \usepackage[mathalfa}{boondox}. No change to the appearance of the document.

I had to comment out \usepackage{mathrfsr} to get the document to compile. So I uncommented that. And now, LaTeX cannot find mathrfsr.sty.

What happened? Can I get back to where I was? Did the invocation of \boondox somehow clobber the \mathrfsr package?

Thanks.
