So I cleaned up my sponges and walked away. I was annoyed and I didn't have fun this morning. And if it isn't fun, then why I am doing it. So I left the mess and the projects and went shopping with my daughters.
And then I came back. I finished cleaning up my morning projects, and you know what? They didn't look too bad after all. So I got brave, mixed up some more grout and grabbed another project. And this time things went well. The grout went on smoothly. The work went quickly. And I actually enjoyed doing. This is what I was thinking! Maybe I won't return those items after all.
Not a bad day's work after all.
