One last post on organization!
If you are a single young lady, you may not be in charge of cleaning your entire house, but it’s good to be aware of what needs to be done. Especially for the of us helping mothers. Be proactive in understanding what needs to be done and how to do it. Leave no corner of home economics unturned. Seek the counsel of your mom. Strive to be her right-hand-man. You are involved in an internship that will change your life – it is important to know there things now, so that we are not overwhelmed by them when the time comes.

P.S. This was a humorous bit a relative sent me on house cleaning:
Having heavily participated in the process the last ten years, I have three general thoughts on the subject.
1) Being a housewife is very, very, very (emphasis is intentional) hard work.
2) When it comes to cleaning procrastinate as long as possible.
3) If you don’t get away with #2, then I heartily recommend finding someone else to do the work. (My role model is Tom Sawyer)
