The writings, as your informal notes with no guaranty of authenticity, are not themselves admissible, but you can testify from your personal knowledge--what you personally perceived--as to what she did, how she acted, what you did, how responsibilities were divided, etc. You can keep notes to help your memory. You should review your notes before going to court and then just testify as to them from memory.
