Halp! The grout is setting too fast.

Started a mosiac project and now I need the grout to stop setting.

Weeks ago, we laid out a mosaic backsplash and then stared at it for weeks and then finally glued the pieces down. And waited two more weeks and then finally started grouting it. Took us a while to get the hang of the whole thing and last night we were just overwhelmed so we went to bed without properly cleaning up. So lots and lots of pieces have grout dried on them. I just spent an hour with a toothbrush and a cup of vinegar scrubbing them off, but this is clearly a huge project and there's no way I can finish it right now.
Is there anything I can do to retard the grout setting?
Will I still be able to get it off with vinegar and a toothbrush tonight? Tomorrow?
