    Re: just finishing/just going to finish

    It sure does.

    I was working on another task up until now. And now my plans are to finish up the report I started earlier. I was just going to finish it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
