    Cool correct or wrong?

    I am not so sure if these two sentences are correct or wrong and if they are wrong please let me know what is wrong about them.

    "I am seeing you are impatient to leave."

    The Scotts are going to have lunch in town next Sunday. They don't think of going away for the weekend."

    thank you

    I see ... - to see does not admit of continuous forms in its basic meaning (perception).
    They are thinking of ... - =planning, an action in progress. I think ... suggests an opinion (a finished product).E.g. I think it's a good idea.
