It could be as simple as a loose belt to a battery problem .. or at worst an alternator

Ohhh wow....how long could I drive with the car like this, because my mechanic isn't open until tomorrow, but I need to get around today....

You car has lots of electronics on it so if there is no charge going to the battery it will not run very long. Maybe not even long enough for a short errand. Have someone check the belt and do a voltage measurement at the battery with the engine running. The voltage should be between 13.5 and 14.7. If you drive it the voltage will get low enough that the car will shut off and not restart until the battery is charged.
