It's finally over and I can breathe

So the holidays are done! It's a little depressing considering how much goes into them and how quickly they go by especially as you get older. But I've made it through the holidays and am currently relaxing on the couch and watching Zero Dark Thirty.
I went to my grandparents house Christmas night so that I could spend some time with them. On Thursday my grandfather and I went shopping while my grandmother went to dialysis. I went to big lots and got my boyfriend's family their presents and then off to Barnes and Nobles. I could honestly live in a book store. Books are legitimately my favorite thing ever. I would way rather read a book instead of watching a movie. I spent sometime wandering Barnes and Nobles and then I discovered possibly the most exciting section; the Classics section... and they were buy two get one free. I was so excited I actually squeaked. I got Dracula, the collected works of Edgar Allen Poe, Gulliver's Travels, and a collection of Jane Austin novels. My little heart was swelling with joy. And then I realized that my bookshelves are already filled way past capacity and these books aren't exactly small. I expressed my buyers remorse to my grandparents and what happened this morning when I got up? They took me back to big lots to get another bookshelf. So now I've got two 5 shelfers and one 3 shelfer. Now I have to clean/organize my room before I put it together so I have room.
After getting my bookshelf my grandparents dropped me off at home to be reunited with my dogs. My mothers have left to head up to New Jersey to visit family and I've remained behind to watch my sweet puppy dogs and our devil cats (ok... maybe they're not the devil but they're not angels either). This means that I'll be alone (with a lunch date on New Years with my grandparents) until the 4th. And this brings me to the reason that this post is on this website. How the hell does one avoid the temptation of snacks and treats when you're alone?! I don't feel as much pressure when I'm with other people because I know that they know what's up and I can't fool them. But what about fooling myself? This has been my downfall in the past. I will be doing super awesome and then I'll slip up once and say "Oh it's ok. I'll do better tomorrow" and then tomorrow comes and I'll think to myself "Well clearly I've failed so bring on the candy!"
So does anybody have any good tips for satisfying the urges while still remaining a good diabetic. Or maybe some recipes (that aren't to terribly hard because I can't cook for my life.)
Also, I just wanna say that you guys have been awesome! thank you so much for all the support!
And... Did you see the Dr. Who Christmas Special!!!! My whole world is turned upside down. Matt Smith is my favorite!! I can't deal with this change! I've known Peter Capaldi was coming for months and I still can't deal! How can he not fly the freaking Tardis!!!
