Ok... So I Finished Tiling My Floor
Why even mention it? Because it was directly responsible for my missing two or three classes. If I ever get around to taking a picture of it, I'll post it here. It came out quite nice actually.
One thing I noticed was that I did a lot of sitting in seiza the whole time I did the floor. This saved my knees I think as I never bothered with kneepads. My teachers would be proud, I moved with my center the whole time I did the floor.
Thumb still hurts..... knees feel great.
