Home » Sometimes Even Multitaskers Need a Little Help
Sometimes life can be a bit overwhelming. Especially in times of stress or uncertainty, which has pretty much been the theme of the year for 2020. Kids are being fully or partially homeschooled, adult children are returning to the nest while working remotely, and the expectation to meet everyone’s demands is weighing heavily on parents who have to assume the role of quasi-teacher, entertainer, chef, and often full-time employee to boot. While there have been some very positive aspects to this “new normal” in that we are spending more time together and enjoying family time, the added strain can mean that we are unable to tend to the things we need to because there are only so many hours in a day.
In theory, teleworking and being a bit more available seemed like the perfect opportunity to accomplish all of those “little things” we’ve put on the back burner. Cleaning out the gutters, painting the deck, changing outdoor light fixtures, or replacing the dry rot in our window sill all seemed like great DIY projects during this quarantine “down time”, right? But assuming all of these new roles in this uncertain environment has proven to be more than we anticipated, so much of our wish list continues to get pushed to the back burner.
Ms. Fixit (msfixit.com) can help be those extra hands you might need right now, and enable you to accomplish those projects that keep you up at night. Ms. Fixit is owned and staffed by Heritage Contracting – professional, full-time technicians who have served the Norther Virginia building industry for over 20 years. They are also long-time supporters of several area philanthropies to include HomeAid Northern Virginia, the March of Dimes, and Women Giving Back – the latter of which Ms. Fixit President Terri Stagi founded to support women and children in crisis in the community.
Ms. Fixit customer experiences speak for themselves:
“We just had a first rate experience with a power wash session for our patio and stairs. The two person crew was efficient and timely. They also did several stone fences and capping stones on the fences. They put all of the outdoor furniture back in place and left everything very neat. The pricing was reasonable given the type of work and the length of time they were at our home. I highly recommend this company. We have already retained them for another major job.” – Victor, McLean, Virginia.
“Thanks so much for getting the swingset done in time for my son’s birthday! It made quarantine fun and that’s a tough job!” – Dawn, Sterling, Virginia.
