As much as I would like to tell you that our Saturday nights involve cheerleader outfits, political parodies, and more cowbell, in reality our Saturday night currently consists of packing lunches, doing laundry, and prepping lesson plans. Our Saturday nights look nothing like an episode of Saturday Night Live. Now before you go thinking, “man these two are super lame, I am never reading this blog again,” hear me out.
Saturday evenings are currently spent preparing for the work week, because the work week actually starts on Sunday. We work from Sunday-Thursday and have Fridays and Saturdays off. Friday is the Muslim holy day, so the entire country of Kuwait, (and the majority of the Middle East) have a standard work week of Sunday-Thursday.
So far, what this change in the work week has meant for us is that we never know what day of the week it is. Sunday feels like Monday, Thursday feels like Friday and Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are all a blurry mess.
