    Not very scientific, but let Sunday be day 1, and Monday be day 2.

    Code:
    Day Off    1   10  19  28   37
    Charles:  Sun Tue Thu  Sat Mon
     
    Day Off    2  7  12   17   22  27   32  37
    Eva:     Mon Sat Thu  Tue Sun  Fri  Wed Mon
    It appears that 37 days from Sunday they will be off together on a Monday.
