Echoing all the advice here - keep the camera and lenses, and spend money on:

1) learning materials - be they videos, books or online tutorial websites.

2) good processing software ( best bang/buck right now is Corel's Paintshop Pro X4 + Aftershot Pro, IMO - I use PSPX4 but use Lightroom instead of Aftershot)
3) tripod

4) flash and some kind of flash diffuser - I LOVE my Lumiquest softbox - http://www.lumiquest.com/store/products/LumiQuest-SoftBox.html

Regarding 3 - I repeatedly and highly recommend this book - http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Photography-Practical-Illustrated-Encyclopedia/dp/0681540060

Excellent bite sized chunks of information on almost all photography topics. Clearly illustrated and concisely explained.
