The problem is I don't have enough time so I'd really like some advice on the best use of my 5 days at the end of September.

Plan so far
Fly into Grand Junction on Wed 28th arrive 1pm
Fly out of ?? preferably Albuquerque on Sunday 2nd Oct around 3pm

We would like not to back track too much and would love to see the following
1. Arches NP (inc hike to Delicate Arch.. more hiking if time allows, ha!)
2. Canyonlands NP (recommended hike? one day here?)
3. Monument Valley and / or Antelope Canyon (yes I know) best driving route? upper or lower canyon.. this is really a photo op not looking into canyoneering!
4. Mesa Verde or Canyon de Chelly?

Where should we stay on Wed/Thurs/Fri nights? We have points to use with several chain hotels. There will be 3 of us (inc DH and DD) so prefer a room that we can share with 2 beds.

Stay Sat night at Hyatt Tamaya, fly home from ABQ?

Or would it be better to fly out of somewhere else? Skip 4 and head for Vegas? or Phoenix?
Anyway, 1,2 and 3 are high on my wish list but it was very difficult to pare it down. I'm open to other suggestions but we'd prefer not to revisit Bryce/Zion/ Capitol Reef/ Escalante/ Bandelier / ... but we would like to squeeze in a little of NM.

Thanks for your help!
