Tiling progress

This was end of day Wednesday

and this is the wall as of last night's tiling. I find that I am getting less adhesive on me! I had a bit of an issue with the sheets of tile not all being the same size - you would think they all would be the same size, but they are not. I opened a different box and found some that were a bit smaller than the two I first used last night and then the tiling went much quicker. See, I learned something new!

At lunch yesterday I went to the Home Depot for more supplies for the bathroom. I bought four boxes of grout, grout sealer, grout caulk, roller covers, and washers to level out the vanity. I think I bought more grout than I need, but when I am grouting on Sunday I don't want to run out and I can take back any unopened boxes. After talking to my brother yesterday I will have to make one more trip to Home Depot to buy some plumbing parts for the drain hookup and maybe longer flex line for the faucet. I don't know a lot about plumbing, but I guess I will learn now!
