suggestions please?

I've been running my two day split for some time now and am thinking about changing some things around to stop it getting stale.

Mon
---
back squats (3x8)
standing calf raises (5x12 pyramid)
standing military press (3x7)
wide grip/palms away pull-ups (5x5)

Thurs
-----
deadlifts (3x8)
seated calf raises (5x12 pyramid)
dips (3x9)
bent over db row (3x8)

(when I started, I was doing 3x10s - I am trying to progress towards 4x6s or even 5x5s)

I'll not loose the squats or deads as I'm making steady progress there, and although the calf work seems a bit ridiculous, I've a obsession and am loath to drop them too. I've wondered whether dips should go with rows, and whether mil.press should go with pull ups, or whether I should partner them up differently - I'd certainly be happy to hear of an improvement that would make the end of my session seem a little less difficult. I get very tired by the end and struggle to complete the session in less than one and a quarter hours, by which time I imagine my cortisol levels are getting up. I'd like to finish inside an hour (excluding warm up/down). I can't make it more days to the gym, but might add a grip day at home some time.

So, if you were in a similar position, what things would you change?

Thanks in anticipation,
Z
