I want to write a function that returns a tuple of (start,end) where start is the Monday at 00:00:00:000000 and end is Sunday at 23:59:59:999999. start and end are datetime objects. No other information is given about day, month or year. i tried this function

def week_start_end(date):
start= date.strptime("00:00:00.000000", "%H:%M:%S.%f")
end = date.strptime("23:59:59.999999", "%H:%M:%S.%f")
return (start,end)
 
print week_start_end(datetime(2013, 8, 15, 12, 0, 0))

should return (datetime(2013, 8, 11, 0, 0, 0, 0), datetime(2013, 8, 17, 23, 59, 59, 999999))
 
but the function returns tuple with dates (datetime.datetime(1900, 1, 1, 0, 0), datetime.datetime(1900, 1, 1, 23, 59, 59, 999999))
