    preposition

    which is correct?
    1. "I wanted to cook lunch but thinking that mom will be home by 2, i didn't"

    2. "I wanted to cook but on thinking that mom will be home by 2, i didn't"

    Is on necessary there?should it be always there?

    thanks!

    Re: preposition

    Both are correct but the meaning changes slightly with the addition of "on".

    1. I am continuously thinking the same thing.

    2. I changed my mind when a thought occurred.
