the great mystery of the titebond III

So you may be asking "why is April writing about the glue?"  Well let me tell you.  This glue has been the end of me, let me tell you.  I have bought out each Lowes store in gallons of this glue in the San Joaquin County area.  I have gone at night with Jakob and Nathan gallons in toe, with strange looks from strangers.  I know they're all wondering what in the world I want all this glue for but nevermind, at this point I don't even care.  Just give me the glue!! 

 I even sent Mr. Know-it-All to the Sacramento Lowes to buy 10 gallons they had on Friday because we were completely out.  I feel like a failure because I haven't been able to keep up with the necessities of making these butcher blocks.  I ordered 50 gallons of the stuff on Monday which was to arrive on Friday and when I went to pick it up I was told it wasn't being delivered till Monday.  Monday!!! I had to have it for Friday!  So this resulted in using my husband to go fetch the most glue he could from the closest Lowes I could find.   
This has been frustrating yet enlightening for me to notice all the "inventory suppliers" out there in which their job is to provide all their employees with the necessities in order to make their product.  I salute you because I suck at at it.
