Create task with non-fixed due date

One of our staff is setting up a Flow to create a bunch of Planner tasks at the start of the month, and she's trying to get it to create a task with a due date of the 8th working day of that month (i.e, not a Saturday/Sunday).  She was defeated by the date/time syntax (and so was I), but it seems like the sort of thing that Power Automate should be able to do; can anyone help?

This is something that should be easy but isn't...  There may be a more compact way of doing this but I just don't see it.  I am accounting for the first of the month being on a weekend.

See my example below:

Wow!  That's kind of what I was afraid of, but thanks for at least confirming that we weren't missing some kind of obvious nextWeekDay() function or something.  I don't think I'm going to get a better answer, so I'll accept yours as the solution.
