You can take the engine file as it now stands and add a few more lines:

bfname = $(dirname "$1")/"`basename "$1" .tex`"
pdflatex "${bfname}"
bibtex "${bfname}".gls
pdflatex "${bfname}"
pdflatex "${bfname}"

should run all the runs together. You can then add the line

%!TEX TS-program = MyGlossEngine

as the first line in your document (assuming the engine file in ~/ 
Library/TeXShop/Engines/ is called MyGlossEngine.engine).

Good Luck,
