I believe that Todoist will interpret "monday" as 'the next Monday after today', which would be 17 Feb 2014. In 'Todoist speak', "next monday" would mean [the monday after the next monday after today], or 17 Feb 2014.

"next wednesday" does resolve to 19 Feb 2014 because entering "wednesday" would set the due date to 12 Feb 2014.

Does this help explain the situation, or have I made matters worse? :)

Best regards,

Thanks perfectly clear, confusion came from my mother language where "next monday" is "monday" :)
