My DH has become the computer fix-it for our family. Especially for the teens who seem to get viruses on their laptops every week. :p He usually does it, but there are some ground rules. First of all, he has a full time job, we have a 4 year old and a 4 month old, we are both active in volunteer oppurtunites, and when he isn't working, I usually am, so don't count on it being a fast job. You get it back when you get it back. Don't try to get him to diagnose the problem at a family event, especially without said computer to even look at. Yes, there really are 100 reason why you are getting the black screen of death and most are dealt with differently, and he wants to enjoy his daughter recital, baby shower, etc. Also, he is not an expert, so don't get mad if the problem is something that isn't within his expertise. Finally, first time is free after that you pay something. Now, with that said, he doesn't mean money. Most of these are teens. One babysat for us to go to a movie. Another did DD's make up for recital. Doesn't sound like much, but I don't wear make up at all and only have a few tubes of lip gloss around the house. So that saved us either having buy make up or hiring someone to do a makeover for her cause I can't put make up on myself much less a squirming 4 year old.
For me personally, I write. It helps relax me to play in my fantasy worlds for a while. It's mostly fanfiction which leads to the inevitable, 'I see you write 'fill in blank' fiction. Write this story for me.' emails. Now, I can't write on demand, even for myself. When I try the write something everyday challenges, I get writer's block faster than you can say 'writer's block.' So, I can only write what I want, when I want and it's all over the place. I have fics under Fast and Furious, Grimm, Once Upon a Time, and even older shows like Dr. Quinn and Bonanza. So, my interest are all over the place. Usually, people take thanks but no thanks nicely but I did have one berate me for writing for another fandom when I should have been jumping through hoops to write theirs. I used to offer to collaborate but now I don't have time. Oh well.
Finally, to those who decorate cakes, I would love to do that. I admire that skill.
