Married Life Discussions

When I got married 9 years ago I never really sat down and thought about what our conversations would be like. Sometimes the husband and I have those romantic conversations that you never share with other people. Other times we have to discuss mundane things like bill paying, taxes, mortgage life insurance, auto insurance, etc., not the kind of things you really want to discuss but you know you have to. There has to be a way to make those conversations more enjoyable? Any ideas?
