Time to have your alternator and battery tested. Probe your battery with a volt or multimeter. Car off the battery should be above 12V, and with teh engine on , it should be around 14V. You can remove the battery or alternator and have a local auto parts store load test them, or have a garage/mechanic diagnose the issue for you.
