Open the box with the sharp side of the tool away from your body.
Your boyfriend's utility knife is probably not sterile.
Besides accidentally mutilating myself (which could really be the theme of this week) I'm also trying out something different for a sleep schedule during the week. On Wednesday and Thursday I'm trying to sleep for a few hours right after I put my son to bed and then when I wake up (around 11pm - midnight), I start doing all the stuff that I need to. Usually painting or updating website, etc. We'll see how it goes. Last night I was surprised to be full of energy until 4am. However, getting my ass out of bed at 7:30am turned out to be a total failure. At least my son is used to rushing him out the door with a piece of PBJ toast for the walk to school. Such a trooper!
