We are having a little car trouble with our minivan. It's looking like it is not going to be terribly expensive (thankfully), but we are going on four days with one car that 1. doesn't fit all of us and 2. Abe is driving to work all day.
Hopefully we'll get it back tomorrow. However, I am enjoying being temporarily without a car. It's like when the power goes out. I would NOT like it to be without power long term, but for a few hours it is delightful. You can't do any heavy duty cooking. You play games or read or go to bed. If it is storming outside you get to watch the rain and lightening and trees blowing.
Similarly with no car you don't go anywhere--except on walks to the park. You invite friends to come to you. You relax at home and get into projects. Of course the house is no cleaner since everyone is into projects, but it's a little calmer.
