Other assets is an un-cashed medical re-imbursement. The month of September was a pretty good one for the stock market. Probably one of the best September's ever. I remember back at the end of August Jim Cramer said this would be a "September to remember" and he was right, my retirement fund was up 4%. On the cash side of the equation, I had to buy new glasses and contact lenses which were almost $600, but 100% covered by insurance. I am still awaiting my insurance reimbursement check over a month after my appointment. I called my insurance company the other day to ask "where's my money?". They say a check was sent on 9/15, but I haven't seen it yet, and they can't stop payment, and send another check until October 15th. So hopefully I will have that money to go Christmas shopping with. Speaking of Christmas, here it comes! Less than 90 days away. October 1st I was greeted by the first frost/freeze of the year. Amazing fact of the month: My car appreciated by $200. Since the beginning of the year according to KBB, my car hasn't depreciated at all. It seems $10,000 is a magic number of sorts? Or maybe it is the 4 year age of my car? I wonder if that is when car depreciation slows way down? I will have to remember about that the next time I purchase a used car. $10,000 and/or 4 years old.
